Our children, our choice. Allow for religious and medical exemption

Medical procedures for children, including vaccinations,  should be decided by the child’s parents or guardians, not the state or school system. There are potential risks and side effects of vaccinations (or any medical procedure) and where there is risk, there should be a choice. Let parents decide what is best for their child without being bullied or coerced into doing something they disagree with. There should always be a religious or medical exception available to those with hesitation. Additionally, the covid 19 vaccine should NOT be added to the childhood vaccine schedule. There is now ample evidence that the Covid 19 vaccines are linked to deadly blood clots, heart inflammation, and other devastating side effects. Furthermore, it has been seen more and more that the virus does not typically affect children as severely as older adults. 
Thank you for your time.
